4 MENOPAUSAL SYNDROME

5 WESTERM VIEWPOINTS OF MENORPAUSE SYMDROME o Menopause indicates: the complete or permanent cessation of menstruation; the phase in a women s life during which she makes the transition from a reproductive to a non-productive stage. This transition usually spans 2-5 years around the menopause. o Median age of menopause: Around 51. o Menopause Syndrome: Climacteric syndrome, refers to the discomfort and symptoms appearing during these years. Endeavour College of Natural Health 5

Signs and symptoms include: o Vexation, agitation, and easily angered o Depression o Dizziness o Palpitations o Loss of sleep o Dry mouth and parched throat o No flavour of food Endeavour College of Natural Health 6

7 TCM VIEWPOINTS OF MENOPAUSAL SYNDROME At about 50, the Ren Mai becomes empty, the Sea of Blood debilitated and scanty and the tian gui is exhausted o Due to decline of Kidney Essence, Chong and Ren Xu the menses stop. o Some women experience no signs and symptoms as their menstrual flow changes, some do, either before or after menopause. When they do it is termed menopausal or climacteric syndrome. o Generally occurs between years.

14 Notes of TCM Treatment o Chinese medicine can help minimise the problems in this transition period in a women s life. o Herbal treatment is essential, usually more effective than acupuncture, because herbs are better at nourishing the essence. o The severity of menopause symptoms depends on the pre-existing condition of kidneys and therefore on the diet and lifestyle throughout her lifetime. Thus, it s important to educate the patient that TCM treatments (herbs, acupuncture, dietary therapy, Tai Chi or Qi Gong, etc.) can help her in this transition period in a slow and gradually way.
